Indira greeted me. She walked down to where I was dropped off from the airport - nice service. FYI - please do not get misguided from the name of the establishment. Hostal in Peru is Hotel. Although some units in Buena Vista do have shared bathrooms. Also, the units do not have heat, although you can rent a room heater…... More

From a personal point of view the Hostal was perfect a perfect start for my trip to Machu Picchu. Yes the Hostal is up a steep road but this just gives one an excuse to turn around and admire the view of the city. The rooms were a little on the chilly side but clean and tidy. The breakfast was...

Although this is no luxury hotel, rooms are decent size and beds are comfortable. We stayed in #3 by chance which was a suite with a large sitting room and old Inca wall on the side. But windows were thin, little heat or air, and bath had thin sheeting over it with cobwebs. Staff was great! Let us store bags... More

First time that an owner told me my reservation rate was too much and gave me a discount. My single room had three beds. The staff was very helpful. Breakfast was simple. The good news you are close to the top of city which is also the bad news. Beautiful views with plenty of restaurants close by.plus the cocoa museum... More

Our room was very specious and bright, the bed was great, everything was very clean and the breakfast was fine. The room was a bit cold but you can rent a heater . The staff was really friendly. The location is great but you have to go through a long steep street to get there, which can be very tiring... More

We stayed in hostal Buena Vista for 2 nights, then did the Salcantay Trail and after that we came back for another Night. Nothing is too much for the staff; leaving your backpack in store while we were gone, offering breakfast at 03:45 before we were being picked up for the trail. Excellent service! Especially Paula is a great help!... More

We stayed here four nights in July 2014. We had a gorgeous room on the 2nd floor with a great view of the lights of the city. It's conveniently located, although we dragged our bags there from the main square and that was quite a workout as it is up hill. Staff is (mostly) very accommodating. We also ran into... More

My daughter, son and I stayed here for 2 nights in April, 2014. Our room was clean, though spartan. It was a little cold---but we slept warm under the comforters. Breakfast was very nice. I would definitely stay here again. The location was handy for walking around the old part of Cuzco.

We stayed here for two nights and it was really quite nice. Everything was very clean and cozy albeit simple. The staff were helpful and the place is really well located. Breakfast is not flash but quite ok. Heating costs extra but just 5 or 10 dollars. We did not need it though.

We booked for 4 nights at this hostel after reading good reviews on Trip Adviser. We had been in contact with the hostel via email to confirm our booking. When we arrived by taxi from airport we were told by man at reception that they did not have a room for us . There had been a mix up and... More
